Musician Chris Dorman, of Mister Chris and Friends, has always been there for his kids. Running Bread and Butter Farm in Shelburne with his partner, Corie Pierce, has allowed him to be a stay-at-home dad to 6-year-old Henry and 3-year-old Samantha. His two little ones inspired Dorman to create Music for Sprouts — a music-and-movement program for the 3-and-under set. This month, Dorman embarks on a new musical homage to kids and kin: putting together his first full-length children's album. He hopes the collection, titled Always There, "will be cherished while our kiddos grow and maybe even be shared with our kiddos' kiddos." Dorman's neighbor Donna Hartley created artwork for the album, pictured, and Burlingtonian Jared Slomoff will engineer and produce the sound. A 30-day Kickstarter campaign to fund it begins with a July 1 launch party.

Always There: Launch party at Bread and Butter Farm, Tuesday, July 1, 4 p.m. with a concert at 5 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m. Rain date is July 2. Find more information at misterchrisandfriends.com.
